Morning Drop Off
1-8 Drop Off Spots
Please make sure your child's iDismiss number is visible in the passenger window. If someone else is picking up your child, please make sure they know your child's dismissal number.
It is ALWAYS best if your child knows in the morning how they will be getting home that day. However, if you must call in a change, please call BEFORE 2:00.
Stay in Vehicle
Please stay in your vehicle during drop-off and pick-up. During pick-up, your child will walk to the numbered spot they were assigned and wait for you. Thank you for keeping our students safe and not pulling forward during pick-up.
